In this workshop you will have an overview of grafting techniques, participate in a discussion of rootstock and fruit trees, and apply techniques learned about bud grafting, which can be applied to various fruit trees. Seth Yentes has been grafting for 14 years and grows thousands of fruit trees every year, including apples, pears, peaches, plums and many more. Registration on the MOFGA Store

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers, foodies and activists take on a giant
Portland Press Herald - 10/14/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – An international chemical and biotech giant, St. Louis-based Monsanto is a frequent target of agriculture reformers, human rights campaigners, environmental activists and natural foodies. Those who lament the current industrial agriculture system and the often nutritionally deficient, environmentally destructive and contaminated food that it produces see Monsanto as the system's poster child. In response, activists around the globe have organized the International Day of Opposition to Monsanto this Friday.
Ensuring food safety
Bangor Daily News - 10/14/2009.
Editorial – Americans eating a hamburger or a salad should not have to worry that their meal will make them sick or even kill them. But, according to a public interest group, staples of many diets – leafy vegetables, eggs, tuna and ice cream – are among the riskiest foods you can eat. Congress can improve the situation, but only if it moves forward with modernization of the country’s food safety rules. Such a bill is languishing in the Senate.
Maine taking part in effort to fight climate change
Bangor Daily News - 10/13/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Camden: Next Saturday, people all over the world will gather at places such as the Taj Mahal and the Great Barrier Reef to encourage government leaders to take action to fight climate change. Add the Camden Snow Bowl, Belfast Common, Bar Harbor and the Bangor Public Library to that exotic list. These and more than 25 other locations in Maine will hold events as part of the global 350.org climate change campaign, which was started by Vermont-based environmentalist and writer Bill McKibben.
‘Something silly’ hits Damariscotta
Bangor Daily News - 10/12/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Damariscotta: Costumed people raced around Damariscotta Harbor on Sunday in giant pumpkins that were hollowed out and equipped with outboard motors. Two thousand people cheered them on from shore, clapping when they made it and clapping when they didn’t.
